So... I am having some problems keeping my A-MAZE-N 5X8 lit while in my MES30.. Quick story and set up.. Currently run a MES30. Bought the 5x8 about a year ago. First time I used it, worked perfectly and loved it. Because of who I am, I saw a sale on pellets, and bout 80 pounds, and 5 pounds of sawdust. And now, for the last 5 or 6 smokes, I can't keep it lite for more than 5 minutes once its in the smoker.. My routine: I fill the smoker up (the last 3 or 4 smokes have been using pit master blend), lite it up with a torch, and let it sit for about 15 minutes. I would guess that 3 or 4 minutes of that there is flames, I blow that out and let it sit and smoke to get a good coal going. I then put it in the MES30 on the bottom left, right next to the smoker box in the smoker. I feel like I read somewhere that it was designed to work there, because it fit perfectly. Now, once its in there, it goes out in about 5 minutes or less. To me, that tells me that its not getting enough oxygen. I have read on this forum a bunch, and have tried all kinds of things. I pull the chip tray out of the smoker, the loader tube 1/4 out, 1/2 out, 3/4 out, chip tray in, same deal with the loader. The only thing I have never tried was the chip tube all the way out because my mind tells me the head will just pump out that hole and won't help with cooking. So, what am I missing/doing wrong? I know I could possible do the mail-box mod, but I don't want to go through that hassle. I would like to get this all up and running, and not have to worry about it. I like the product, I think the smoke the pellets provide is great (as seen by how many I bought), but I just need to figure out how to get this working in my set up.. Thanks..
